is trying to unseat senator scott brown. so, how has the media been covering this race? liz trotta with her commentary now. >> never a dull moment at harvard. two weeks ago, a divinity school professor announced she might have evidence that jesus christ had a wife. last week, a law professor who happens to be running for national office, was still defending her american indian ancestry. in fact, the liberal professor, elizabeth warren, has been talking about this since last spring, when the issue came up during her campaign to unseat senator scott brown, a republican. miss warren is a star in the democratic universe, a new and improved hillary clinton. perhaps even a presidential candidate, they say. she spent time as an adviser to president obam abut as the story goes, the republicans and even perhaps a few democrats ran her out of town. senator brown, if you haven't been paying attention, won his traditionally democratic seat in a special election after the death of senator ted kennedy, a tipoff to the white house that trouble lurk in the land of hope and change. so this is an extremely c
moments, a debate between the senate -- the candidates for senate in massachusetts, scott brown and elizabeth warren. in about one hour, a debate between the candidates for senate in nebraska. after that, we will re-air the interview with former presidential candidate ross perot. several live events to tell you about tomorrow. here on c-span, the new america foundation hosts a discussion on the role of money in the campaign. that is at 12:15 p.m. eastern. just before that, the urban institute looks at what hap -- at what may happen to individual taxes if congress does not address the fiscal cliff. later, arne duncan speaks with the national press club on the state of education. >> i have all the channels. house, senate, author, book reviews, those types of things. if i knew a bill was coming up on the floor in the house, i watched which channel i want to see, because i have them all. if there is a speech i know you have covered or a book review, i am going to watch that. when i want to find out something, that is going to be one of the first places i look. i am obviously a publi
. >> stephanie: yeah exactly. love your headlines, scott brown will not be bullied by a girl from harvard. the only clips i saw was him bringing up her heritage over and over again. >> i think he's making a little bit of headway -- you know making her explain what she did for asbestos companies. it helped the asbestos workers, but you have to understand bankruptcy law to understand how it did that and you can't make a commercial out of that. the whole you make $350,000 to teach one course -- well he has been to law school. he knows how law schoolworks. >> stephanie: exactly. >> that line of attack is completely dissident from the line he sold to the country for three years. and the whole thing is mom, the girl is picking on me. >> stephanie: that's what you say, his commercials are all about the smarty pants girl who is being mean to him. and you say it is a perfect miniature of the matchup of the mooks and the smart chick from harvard. >> yeah, there was a big turn around when the mayor of boston came out with a very very strong endorsement of elizabeth warren, whic
. maine has faltered badly. linda mcmann is now still doing well against chris murphy. scott brown is holding his own against her and leading in many polls. if republicans lead all three of those races, the republicans are going to pick up the senate. >> that is true on new england approximate. do you think you can get more traction on akin if they keep coming in and supporting him? >> i think so. if the republican party after this election wonders why they're still having a problem with women, it's because of stuff like this. they did what was the politically right thing but the right thing with distancing themselves from akin, then just to come back, that's going to be a problem not just for the akin race but nationally. >> not just money. saying words that seem supportive of akin, the more they start doing that, the more ammunition they're giving rodell and other democrats in other races. >> but what has been fascinating is the strongest candidates have been the women candidates, both in the democratic and republican side. we put this out yesterday, mike. >> right. as brad just
to win in november. >> and in massachusetts, republican scott brown has apologized for what some of his aides did in appearing on this video where they were mocking elizabeth warren for her native-american heritage. that is apology sufficient and should this be an issue in this campaign? >> certainly it's up to the people of massachusetts to determine that. they have watched this race, they have seen scott brown tell people to take a look at elizabeth warren to determine her heritage, which is frankly offensive to me, people in massachusetts will make that determination. but i will say this. again, we have a race where elizabeth warren is fighting for the values that american families care about, making sure we all have an opportunity that our kids all have access to education, that medicare and medicaid are there for our families within we need them and that's the difference in the election and i believe strongly that elizabeth will do well in massachusetts in november. >> senator patty murray, thank you very much. thanks for being with us today. >>> and developing now, on "andrea mitc
down to her. i think scott brown did himself a world of harm in the way he came across. >> because scott brown has always been regarded as a likable chap. you might not like his policies but he's had an affect which people have found warm and personalable. >> i think in this debate and the previous debate he's ruined that image for himself. he's been seen as sort of like a bully. he keeps going after her on this native american question, just over and over again. his campaign is almost centered on it. even when they asked him a question, a sort of fluffy question about the red sox, he had to attack elizabeth warren because she was wrong about the number of games that she predicted they would won this season. it's just relentless. he can't get over the fact that he personally dislikes her, and it comes through. he looks like a bully. >> and with regard to tomorrow, how does mitt romney, given the policy that is he himself has espoused and articulated, how does he warm up women towards him? how does he do that? >> i think the difficulty for mitt romney is the same one he's had all al
. >> in the closely watched u.s. senate race in massachusetts, scott brown issued a warning to his staff after video turned up chan a tomahawk chops at a campaign rally. among those involved, brown's deputy chief of staff. the head of the cherokee called on senator brown to apologize describi the staffers as down right racist. senator brown cengehis opponent elizabeth warren's claim she is of native-american heritage. she used the minority status for professional eastern personal gain. last night brown's campaign released atatement offering regrets and sent out an apology. senator brown haspoken to his dialvoed in this unacceptable behavior -- and issued them one and only warning that this type of conduct will not be tolerated. he regrets that members of his staff did notive up to the high standards that the people of massachusetts expect and serve. >>> secretaryf ste hillary nth' attack on the u.s. consulate in lib why may have had ties to an al qaeda affiliate in the region. secretary clinton's comments which came during a special u.n. meeting add to the administration's changing explanation about
, because on the fourth of february, 2010, any pretense of a super majority ended when republican scott brown was sworn in to senator kennedy's once seat. do you see a two year super majority? i don't think so. for more on mitt romney's secrets answered lice, we go to washington d.c. and michael tomasky. welcome back inside the war room. >> always a pleasure, hi. >> always a pleasure. why is it that more people around calling out the republicans, especially mitt romney for this two year super imaginety myth? >> i don't understand, really, the republicans in congress and elsewhere have been saying that for a long, long time. i've never understood why the democrats don't beat back on that more aggressively than they do. i don't understand why steve croth let romney get away with it last night. this democratic as an adjective drives me nuts. it's intentional and meant as an insult. that's a side point, i guess. you put the two -- >> it just gets your goat, i can tell. >> yes it does. for viewers who don't know, that's what joe mccarthy used to call the democratic party the democratic party
watch massachusetts senate race gets more personal with ads up from scott brown and from elizabeth warren about her alleged native american heritage. the question is who has the edge for the last month of this back and forth
. >> bill: exactly. the story this morning about massachusetts -- scott brown seems to think the number one issue up there is painting elizabeth warren as native american. of course, she helped maybe create that issue, but is this the issue that is going to help him win? >> i think this is the beginning of a long campaign that he is going to run. the fact fors on the ground all argue in warren's favor. there are going to be -- >> bill: democratic registration -- >> exactly 7 or 8,000 new voters who didn't vote for scott brown back in the special election in 2010, because they just didn't come out to vote. now he has to do something to undermine her credibility. at the moment the polls are showing elizabeth warren on a pretty strong rise. so scott brown has to do something to change this race. and i think elizabeth warren demonstrated it is an issue of concern for her. she herself went up with a response ad hours after scott brown did, which tells me they believe that is something of concern. >> bill: yeah. and she had addressed it before, but she can't take any c
this thing around? >>> and senator scott brown of massachusetts issues an apology after some of his staffers are caught on video doing the tomahawk chop to mark dubious claims by he lez beth warren that she is part native-american. do the voters care about any of this? it's "way too early" for this. good morning. i'm willie geist. this is "way too early" the show after further review is still way too damn early. i'm glad you're up watching us or listening live. you can e-mail me as always. you can tweet me to the answer the question why are you awake. or you can text the word awake followed by your response. we'll read the best responses next. the next 30 minutes will be the cram session for this thursday, september 27th. a lot to tell you about
